Frogs

A palm tree near the pond, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 
 

Frogs, as I pass by your pond,
show me your beauty.
Come out of the mud.
Taste the clear night air.
Pretend to be stars or moonlight!
Sing to the flashing planets,
sing with your flickering tongues,
sing a song of sixpence,
fill your lungs with spring!

wandering pilgrim
in a land of no grasses—
her barren footsteps

Even barren lands reveal their beauty.

Though petals wither,
beauty’s promises are kept
by ripening seeds.

Brittlebush blossoms—
who can eclipse their beauty
by smudging the light?
